Judgments - Hinchy (Respondent) v. Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (Appellant)

(back to preceding text)

58.  For those reasons I have serious reservations about the factual conclusion reached by the Tribunal in this case. But they were applying a principle which was at least as favourable to the claimant as those which we are applying. They also see far more claimants than we do and are far better equipped to make these sorts of judgments than are we. They have reached the conclusion that these instructions were clear enough for the claimant to understand and I do not think that it is open to us to disagree. With some reluctance, therefore, I would allow this appeal.
